Color Artist

Andy Warhol used this repeated print to experiment with color systems.  The variation in this piece lies not in the subject matter, but rather in the chosen color system.  The color is what makes this interesting.  He uses recognizable color systems, such as the complementary color system in the bottom left corner.  Each piece is different and none of the colors are realistic, yet all of it is balanced in detail, color, intensity, and size.  These were created by silk screening Marilyn Monroe's face on top of squares of color.  This allowed him to create different styles and depict different colors.
